Raw and authentic, but after the recent sprinkle of magic dust provided by Marriage Story, this particular relationship saga didn't quite bang for me.
This film indulges in a lot of the tropes and cliches of a typical ‘child in the system’ narrative, but I can’t lie and say it didn’t still shake me to my core.
A collection of real time thoughts:
~ I totes know all about this, I've seen Narcos.
~ Well, season one of Narcos anyway...
~ Damn less that two minutes in and this cinematography is already SICK.
~ Oh shit this is gonna be good.
~ Emily Blunt in uniform makes me feel things.
~ This is not my dream job.
~ INAPPROPRIATE FLIP FLOPS ALERT.
~ The least romantic surprise trip to Mexico ever.
~ Look at all these lads…
~ Visually stunning. Every frame could be in a gallery.
~ Too long. The first 30 mins were ponderous.
~ Blade Runner is hypnotic, Blade Runner 2049 is moody. I prefer hypnotic.
